TL;DR: In this article, a double ellipsoidal geometry is proposed to model both shallow penetration arc welding processes and the deeper penetration laser and electron beam processes, which can be easily changed to handle non-axisymmetric cases such as strip electrodes or dissimilar metal joining.
Abstract: A mathematical model for weld heat sources based on a Gaussian distribution of power density in space is presented. In particular a double ellipsoidal geometry is proposed so that the size and shape of the heat source can be easily changed to model both the shallow penetration arc welding processes and the deeper penetration laser and electron beam processes. In addition, it has the versatility and flexibility to handle non-axisymmetric cases such as strip electrodes or dissimilar metal joining. Previous models assumed circular or spherical symmetry. The computations are performed with ASGARD, a nonlinear transient finite element (FEM) heat flow program developed for the thermal stress analysis of welds.* Computed temperature distributions for submerged arc welds in thick workpieces are compared to the measured values reported by Christensen1 and the FEM calculated values (surface heat source model) of Krutz and Segerlind.2 In addition the computed thermal history of deep penetration electron beam welds are compared to measured values reported by Chong.3 The agreement between the computed and measured values is shown to be excellent.
TL;DR: In this article, the benefits of non-destructive testing, online monitoring and in situ machining are discussed, and strategies on how to manage residual stress, improve mechanical properties and eliminate defects such as porosity are suggested.
Abstract: Depositing large components (>10 kg) in titanium, aluminium, steel and other metals is possible using Wire + Arc Additive Manufacturing. This technology adopts arc welding tools and wire as feedstock for additive manufacturing purposes. High deposition rates, low material and equipment costs, and good structural integrity make Wire+Arc Additive Manufacturing a suitable candidate for replacing the current method of manufacturing from solid billets or large forgings, especially with regards to low and medium complexity parts. A variety of components have been successfully manufactured with this process, including Ti–6Al–4V spars and landing gear assemblies, aluminium wing ribs, steel wind tunnel models and cones. Strategies on how to manage residual stress, improve mechanical properties and eliminate defects such as porosity are suggested. Finally, the benefits of non-destructive testing, online monitoring and in situ machining are discussed.

TL;DR: Explosion welding (EXW) is one of the joining methods consisting of a solid state welding process in which controlled explosive detonation on the surface of a metal is produced to remove away the impurities on the metal surfaces as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Explosion welding (EXW) is one of the joining methods consisting of a solid state welding process in which controlled explosive detonation on the surface of a metal. During the collision, a high velocity jet is produced to remove away the impurities on the metal surfaces. Flyer plate collides with base plate resulting in a bonding at the interface of metals. The metal plates are joined at an internal point under the influence of a very high pressure and causes considerable local plastic deformation at the interface in which metallurgical bonding occurs in nature and even stronger than the parent metals. Similar and dissimilar materials can be joined by explosive welding. In this paper, after detection the theories of welding and wave formation, experimental research and numerical studies on explosive welding are reviewed for the last four decades. Also, future developments in explosive welding are predicted and criticized in an outlook.
